LINDA MILES, CSP, CMC
INDUSTRY ICON AWARD
An internationally-recognized consultant, speaker and author on dental practice management and team development, Linda Miles founded an INC 500 dental management consulting firm in 1978, Linda Miles and Associates; and founded the Speaking Consulting Network in 1997. She sold those two businesses in 2007 and 2010 to devote more time to Oral Cancer Cause (OCC), a Florida-based 501 nonprofit that saves lives by creating awareness of early-stage head and neck cancer. OCC, which Miles co-founded with Robin Morrison in 2013, also provides financial assistance to oral cancer patients undergoing medical procedures who are unable to eat, speak or work. In 2016, with Dr. Tanya Brown, she co-founded Ultimate Team Mastery, an online virtual classroom for dental practices that aims to keep their teams on the cutting edge of management and communication skills, without travel days out of their practices to do so. In the past year, Miles served in an advisory capacity on the launch of diydentalconsulting.com, a complete guide to leadership, communication, systems training and team accountability founded by Nancy Crossin. Miles has spoken in 50 states and on four continents, authored four books and mentored many dental consultants and speakers.
